March 06, 2012 // Franchising.com // Dayton, OH – Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, has just awarded their 19th Sports Marketing Franchise to Bradley M. and Marquita Kerley of Flower Mound, TX. We are eager to welcome this franchise, which marks the first to open in the Lone Star state of Texas. Bradley and Marquita join over 18 other existing franchises in 12 different states awarded by Sports Image® in just its first two-and-a-half years of franchising.
“Owning our own business has always been a dream. We now have the opportunity to work our passion, helping the local youth and students while assisting schools and organizations meet their goals. Sports Image® is that difference in Texas,” stated Mr. Kerley.
Since 2002, Sports Image® has helped schools and organizations obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs as budgets continue to dry up nationwide. The program has zero cost to the schools and organizations. Through its’ unique, grassroots sports marketing approach and by leveraging existing relationships, Sports Image® has given over $850,000 in cash and over $10,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.
“We are excited to have Bradley and Marquita as part of our team,” stated Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “The couple’s vast network of connections and fiery spirit will be a good fit to lead Sports Image® in the Lone Star State.”
“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports. We’ve been helping schools, clubs, community Parks and Recs, churches, and other youth organizations offset Pay-to-Play for over 10 years. In July 2009 we franchised our organization to put vested business owners on the ground floor in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman. “We are on pace to have over 30+ franchises operating across the country by December of 2012.”
